Father! Please grant us your love and the grace of your compassion

Oh Father of compassion! We earnestly hope and desire that you will bear with our situation of not being able to think of the authority, honor or situation of our Father who has such an aching heart, but rather we are living by receiving the power of your compassion.
Since we, who are here on this dark earth of death, know that without grace and the power of life, we would never be able to offer the glory of victory to you, oh Father, please allow us your promised grace, and we earnestly hope and desire that as you carry out the providence you will reveal your entire will and that you will reveal it to us.
Inadequate as we are how dare we show ourselves before you? How could we raise our heads before heaven? Even if we died a hundred million times, we are beings who deserve it. We are held prisoner by the chains of sin, and are people who deserve to go through the suffering of the judgement. Therefore, we hope for your merciful love and hope for your grace, and since we have prostrated ourselves before you with minds that report truthfully on their own, we have laid out before you everything that we have. Please allow us to do away with anything that is not proper, and to maintain the mentality you grant us, and we earnestly hope and desire, beloved Father, that you will guide us to be able to appeal to heaven for your mighty grace.
Father! Please take pity on us. In order to find and go this way which others deny, we remember times that filled our minds with sorrow, and we know that there were times filled with worries and trials; accordingly, Father, even if this is a position which others deny, may the grace of your recognition alone pour down on us. Beloved Father, we earnestly hope and desire that you alone will embrace us, that you alone will comfort us, and that you alone will counsel us.
Among ignorant humankind if there is a person who can understand the anguish of heaven, oh Father, even if he were struck with the distress of anguish a hundred million times, we know that he would be victorious without fail. Please let us be sons and daughters who experience your anguish through our minds and bodies, and please let us experience the concern your heart felt when dealing with the earth, and we earnestly hope and desire that you will establish us as sons and daughters who can fulfill our duties.
Father! Please do not let us remain, in our ignorance, in a position which can lead to ruin. Father, we earnestly hope and desire that you will give us the grace of being able to wait impatiently for your love and compassion alone and being able to eliminate the stronghold of evil by exploding it ourselves.
We earnestly ask that you will allow our minds and bodies to be captured by the grace of your love and the will you have bid us. We have humbly prayed in the name of the Lord. Amen.
